It’s Friday – I’m updating the status of the branches I brought inside 2 weeks ago (previous posts: week 1, week2). This will be the last post. The flowers and leaves are wilting because the small branches can’t get enough water to the new growth.
The cherry blossoms opened but stayed small – then started to show stress – the delicate white petals wilting.
The tulip poplar branch lasted longer with more and more small leaves emerging from the bud.
Four leaves emerged from one bud and one of the leaves unfolded before they all began to wilt.
The only branch that didn’t seem to develop at all was the black walnut. Maybe it was just way too early for those buds to develop even in the warmer temperature indoors.
